Friday morning I woke up super early, since I was still on East Coast time, and surprised the kids. Shannon, Mary Grace, and Connor were all sleeping next door in the boys' room. We cuddled and read stories and Shannon filled me in on everything that had happened, with MG and Connor barely getting a word in edgewise. Once everyone was up and fed, we decided to go get picnic food and take me on a drive to see some of the high points of Monterey. We ate our picnic in a park (Lover's Point? at Monterey Beach? Catherine I need help!) After we ate, fending off seagulls, we chased birds, climbed rocks, and attempted to take some group pictures.
Let's go, Juju!
Where the Borg stay when they're in town. Gotta love Star Trek references.

Jack! Reminds me of this picture of Connor below.
Connor at 13 months, compared to Jack at 17 months.
Shannon's poses crack me up.
Connor looking for squirrels.
MG is excited!
King of the world!
After a little more scenic driving, we headed over to Dennis the Menace Park.

Clean up and bed time! Crashing early on my first day.
